Written by Rick Chapo

San Diego offers a bevy of interesting hikes. Withrepparttar average home price being around $500,000, they better be interesting!

To unwind, I typically stop on my way home from work to hike from Cardiff to Carlsbad onrepparttar 148951 beach. For picturesque sunsets and “tasty waves”,repparttar 148952 beach between Cardiff to Carlsbad can’t be beat.

Cardiff - Starting

I typically start this hike by parking just south of restaurant row in Cardiff. Restaurant row is located torepparttar 148953 north ofrepparttar 148954 lagoon between Cardiff and Solana Beach on Highway 101. Parking is located onrepparttar 148955 side ofrepparttar 148956 road, which is right up againstrepparttar 148957 beach. Give me convenience or give me death!

As you head north, you first pass Charlie’s and other restaurants. Pastrepparttar 148958 restaurants, you will come torepparttar 148959 beginning ofrepparttar 148960 bluffs that will linerepparttar 148961 beach torepparttar 148962 end ofrepparttar 148963 hike. San Elijo campground is on top ofrepparttar 148964 initial bluffs and extends for roughly a mile north. The campground is very popular andrepparttar 148965 temporary home of locals and tourist. You can tellrepparttar 148966 difference by contrasting tans with sunburns.

Following San Elijo, you will walk through Sea Cliff County Park with bluffs over 100 feet high. An area known affectionately as “Swami’s” quickly follows this park. The name derives fromrepparttar 148967 factrepparttar 148968 area aboverepparttar 148969 bluff isrepparttar 148970 home torepparttar 148971 Self Realization Fellowship Center. This area is know as hot surf spot, but is very crowded. If you are a bit winded, you can stop and watch 50 or so surfers maneuver for waves. Yes, traffic jams aren’t exclusively restricted to California freeways.

The Importance Of Creatine In Building Lean Muscle

Written by Hamoon Arbabi

Creatine monohydrate can rightly lay claim to beingrepparttar most popular and arguably most effective bodybuilding supplement currently available. The beauty of creatine is that it is 100% natural and occurs in many foods so it's unlikely to be banned from any sports or competitions. Let's first establish what creatine actually is. In brief, creatine is produced naturally in our bodies to help supply energy torepparttar 148950 muscles. It is produced inrepparttar 148951 liver, pancreas and kidneys before being transported inrepparttar 148952 blood to our muscles. It is then converted into phosphocreatine which is a powerful metabolite used to regeneraterepparttar 148953 muscles' ATP source of energy. From a bodybuilder's perspective, creatine can significantly increase lean muscle mass quickly, improve performance in high intensity exercise, raise energy levels and speed up recovery rates. Creatine's ability to raise energy in muscles is due to its muscle protein synthesizing action whilst reducingrepparttar 148954 breakdown of protein. This happens because creatine hasrepparttar 148955 effect of super-hydrating muscle cells with water. It also improves muscle growth adding size and strength to muscle fibers.
